Dan's computer started making funny noises so I took it all apart and cleaned it. Turned out the fans were just filthy, coated in this awful sticky grime making them spin wobbly. It made me think that computers are starting to be used longer and longer and last longer than they were really designed/tested for and lots of these kinds of problems are going to be coming up. Some day computers will be like cars where you need a 3 year / 30,000 boot regular service to replace your heat sink, clean your fans, etc.
